Abstract

Disabilities can be physical, muscular, cognitive or even emotional. But in this study, we have focused on the involvement of persons with missing digits/fingers (congenital or accidental) of hand/s in criminal activities. Idea was to detect whether there was any impact of number of lost digits on commissioning of various types of crimes. It was found from the data analyzed that individuals with missing digits had been convicted under various Sections of of Law, such as Indian Penal Code (IPC), Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, Arms Act, Excise Act, Explosives Act, and Special & Local Laws, akin individuals with intact digits of hand/s. Out of the total 20000 Ten-digit fingerprint record slips scrutinized, only 422 convicts were found to have missing fingers of hand/s. It was found in the study that persons, with missing index and middle fingers which are considered dominant in accomplishing routine and specialized tasks, participated in all categories of crimes, including the heinous types. Their participation in Theft, Robbery & Dacoity was 29.5%, followed by crimes under Excise Act with 28% involvement. In heinous crimes like Murder & Attempt to Murder the tally stood at 25.5 %. Our analysis, though may not lead to development of theory about proficiency of those with amputated fingers of hand/s in committing crimes, but it certainly can assist the prosecutors/judiciary in highlighting the fact, that a plea of missing fingers rendering a person incapable of committing an offence, may not in all circumstances be a legitimate one.
